Thanks Parsh. That was most informative buddy!

Date car rolls off assembly line/body manufacture and date of engine assembly/manufacture are often not linked nor even close together depending type of assembly lines the company has.

I can understand that 'C' stand for year 2012. But what is the 'N' doing as the 12th character of the VIN? Month of December is represented by 'M'. Has there been any change in TML's VIN format?

Hi wildon,
Could you please help me decode the VIN of this Ford Figo? From your earlier decoding guide I gather this is a Jan 2013 manufactured car. Does the VIN give any other details?

MAJ1XXMRJ1DJ69877

Thanks!

Wildon my friend, I need your urgent help yet again.

The VIN number of this XUV 500 is MA1YL2HJUD6B17374. Using your decoding hints I have deduced it as February 2013 make, 2WD car. Can you provide other useful info, such as exact production date? I would be much obliged.

Thanks in advance, mate.
